FotoTable at 10K Apart

FotoTable at 10K Apart:

Remember when you would dump all your photos onto the table and sort through them? Maybe putting them in sorted piles… Well now you can do it again! This time in your web browser, using Flickr searches, without spilling water on those precious memories.


FotoTable, my entry for 10K Apart — The challenge to build a fully functional web app in less than 10K. Reminiscent of the 5K Awards, some 10 years ago.

Supporting Safari 5, Chrome 5, FireFox 3.6, and IE 9, FotoTable exploits some fun drag and drop effects; various CSS3 features; and even a hint of LocalStorage. As strange as it may sound, to some, making it work in IE9 didn’t take much effort. A real testament to the developers at Microsoft, after the years of hassle with IE6.

And while the contest was limited 10K, I have a few more ideas left for this app, and intend to develop it further with more search features; multitouch for your iPhones and Androids; and perhaps even more. Maybe with a limit of 20K instead.

Vote FotoTable, and tell your friends, colleagues, and pets.
